I feel it too Mark and is why she was the most hated woman on the planet.
In Vancouver I used to be a yard sale junkie and came across this Icon
I got for a toonie of a landscape with a cavern surrounded by trees and at the entry 2 Holy figures lean in embrace. Only one face is visible the one of a man and the other face although not visible is a woman because of the clothes she wears whic are definitely the one of a woman.
I had this icon in my home for years when while doing spring cleaning
I examined it closely and I finally got the message.
It is Jesus and Mary Madeleine. She has hands of a woman the Jesus figure has hands of a man. But the weird thing is the same clothes are worn by a male figure on the way to the cavern with a halo and a beard
twice. The first time the male figure has a staff on the shoulder with his mantle. The 2nd time he has the mantle (pale pink) on him and use the staff to walk when he stops at the sight of a naked minautore (devil figure).
So the allegory would be that when Mary Magdeleine on the way to find Jesus again became male (the male figure) she could pass the devil
and reach Jesus for the ultime sacred Union.
The icon is on wood panel not signed and worn out but , its probably paper and not fabric but whatever copy or not the beauty of the icon and the message is overwhelming.
It gives couples a wonderful lesson of transcental love from the animality to the sublime. Where the emotions are in check to leave the room to devotion. That is what I see for a woman as becoming a man.
But as Kimberly said beautifully it is "woman devotion to a worthy man"
so the couple become One and they can go back as One to the Father.
So the man first has to deserve the devotion. That's my take on it
and I call that "reconnecting with the di wine" in the "mystic union"
or "sacred marriage".
You have no idea how I enjoyed meeting people in yard sales especially in Vancouver where you can meet the whole planet.
